David Poile Steps Down as Preds GM

With the franchise under a new manager, could Shea Weber be on his way out soon?

In a somewhat surprising move, Preds GM David Poile stepped down from his job on Friday night, saying that "he couldn't handle the job anymore". The organization fixed this problem rather quickly, hiring Deku Scrub to a three-year contract to take over as general manager. Here's a couple tidbits from his first interview:

"This team has been considered a Cup contender for the past few years, but hasn't been able to perform." said new GM Deku Scrub. "I promise our fans, and the city of Nashville, that I will turn this franchise into a winner."

When asked about team captain Shea Weber, here's what he had to say: "Well... I'll have to talk with him; see if he wants to stay here. I can't really comment much on this now, but it is possible that you'll see a move in the near future."

Here is the Nashville Predators 2012-13 starting lineup:

A. Kostitsyn (83) - Legwand (83) - Erat (83)
Kostitsyn (81) - Fisher (82) - Hornqvist (82)
Smith (79) - Wilson (80) - Spaling (78)
Halischuk (77) - Gaustad (77) - Yip (75)

Blum (81) - Weber (90)
Hannan (81) - Gill (80)
Josi (73) - Klein (78)

Rinne (89)
Mason (72)
